Directed by Bob Clark
During a festive Yuletide party, a group of sorority sisters receive a creepy call from someone who claims he’s going to kill them all. The girls soon realize the threats were serious, when one by one, they each fall prey to the mysterious maniac. After directing two relatively ignored horror flicks which later became cult classics (CHILDREN SHOULDN’T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS & DEATHDREAM), a Christmas miracle made Bob Clark’s 1974 classic a hit. A huge influence on John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN, BLACK CHRISTMAS is frequently credited with helping spawn the slasher subgenre.
This horror classic about a killer stalking sorority girls on Xmas helped spawn the slasher genre.
Cast: Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder
much scarier than the remake. the eye thru the door crack gave me nightmares for years. CLASSIS!!!
A really good movie that started the slasher genre, also very unexpected ending
This is definitely an underrated slasher classic! I love the characters. Margo Kidder's character is tied for the funniest with the house mother. Unlike most slashers, there wasn't a single character here that I didn't like. The end is to die for!
The lead actress is amazing and beautiful. You may recognize her from Romeo & Juliet. Movie still holds up.
An amazing movie with good characters and acting. A perfect mix of humor and horror!
